Training for all teams will recommence soon. Our Nursery are back this
Saturday the 18th. Our 16 boys are already back (eager beavers), the 12’s
boys on the 20th and the U16 girls on the 21st. O’Toole’s will be a hive of
activity for the new season.

*David Needham is facilitating a Foundation GAA Coaching course on both
Wednesday the 22nd and the 29th Jan. Both nights must be completed in order
to be certified. Please contact David directly for more information and to
book your place. It is very important for mentors/ helpers to complete this
course.*

You can get cosy in a Club onesie for the rest of the winter. The retailer
will be here this Saturday morning from 9:30am.

O’Toole’s send our deepest sympathy to the family of Martin Dunne who
passed away recently. Martin was responsible for running a very successful
camogie team here in O’Toole’s. He was instrumental in developing skills
and nurturing the talents of the girls. His 4 daughters also played for
the club and his son was also a trainer (in fact, O’Toole’s made it to the
All-Ireland Final in the U14 Camogie Féile under this management team). One
of our camogie team wrote the following in acknowledgement and gratitude
for the tremendous effort and time Martin put into helping the girls.

*”Mr. Dunne thank you so much for all you’ve done for a lot of us over the
years. As young girls to discover Camogie was life changing. At the end
of the road was not just “a Green” (where we played) but a path to
self-discovery. Being part of Cameron Park Camogie was one of the best
things that ever happened for us. We learned so much about ourselves, we
met some lifelong friends, some played for our County, we had a purpose in
teenage life and most importantly we had fun! You were patient,
encouraging, tactical and clever about the game, you thought us respect,
discipline and self-worth, you brought out the best in us and they were
great days. All those skills you passed onto us have stood us in good
ground not just as Camogie players but in life situations too. Thank you
so much.”*

*Entertainment this weekend in our lounge. Saturday, we have ‘Sidetrax’ and
Sunday it’s ‘Double Digits’*
